Eintracht Braunschweig vs FC Heidenheim
2.Bundesliga – Season 2017/18
Date: Saturday, 5th August 2017
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Eintracht-Stadion (Braunschweig).
Braunschweig made a decent start to the new season and they will be looking to shift gears in the first home match of the season.
It was a thriller when Braunschweig visited Dusseldorf last week. Despite trailing by a early goal, the Swedish duo Joseph Baffo and Christoffer Nyman put the visitors a decisive lead. But Dusseldorf peg back through Florian Neuhaus to put the scores level at 2-2. Braunschweig dealt another blow late in the game when the industrious midfielder Quirin Moll was sent-off for a second bookable offense.
Braunschweig finished third in the league last season and loss to Wolfsburg in the promotion play-offs. Their head-coach Torsten Lieberknecht will be keen to finish inside the two automatic promotion spots this term.
FC Heidenheim had their opening game of the season against FC Erzgebirge Aue postponed due to storm. The team managed by Frank Schmidt finished 6th in the table last season and will have their eyes set on promotion this term.
To Heidenheim’s woes is their poor record on the road. The team managed a moderate 5 wins from 17 away games last season. And their negative goal-difference during the period is an evidence of their inability to perform at a consistent level.
